If you're looking to tour Peninsula Valdes then you are probably best basing yourself out of Puerto Madryn. There's loads of tasty restaurants and some excellent shopping - plus tons of ice cream parlours and even a Welsh tea room.

On a sunny day the beach is great for soaking up the rays and if you've chosen the right time of year you'll even see the whales go by.

It's just under an hour from the airport at Trelew and if you're quick off the plane you'll might even get a space on the cheap minibus (which will drop you to your hotel door) rather than needing to pay for a taxi.

I've added a separate page with info about the animals on the peninsula at:


And there's info on the Welsh tea-rooms at Gaiman at:

    I suppose enough wine might make bad food seem to taste good. You were lucky you had a good hotel, though. Usually, I find good restaurants, but dodgy hotels.
